Industrial Designis an amalgamation of new concepts, processes and approaches in object-user design both physical and digital in the current and future modern context. The design projects thematically relate to the context of the local, social, cultural, environmental perspective which is the current mandate for a sustainable futures. The program gives the students an opportunity to explore a vast canvas of possibilities in new age domains bringing global technology concepts to satisfying local needs based on human centric research, design leading to potential tangible and intangible solutions.
In Industrial Design discipline, students are mentored how to create a product from an idea starting with a sketch to a physical prototype while defining tangible and intangible experiences of aesthetics and ergonomics, functions and value.
Quintessential studio skills required to present designer’s idea in front of stakeholders, in both traditional and digital mediums.
Studies of forms, be it natural or man-made and how forms intrinsically translates to functions and experiences like elegance or aesthetic pleasure.
Mini and Major classroom projects related to Everyday products of design, Lifestyle accessories, Packaging, Smart products, Design Futures and Service design
Physical and Digital
An industry demanding skill
which involves making ideas
into physical reality. Digital
modelling is essential in
manufacturing and visualizations.
Human centric design for a
future where design bridges the
gaps between a diverse set of
users, abled or differently-abled,
privileged or under-privileged.
Design that deals with all the
elements within a system so that
it can fulfil specific requirements
as a complete entity.
Students have understood various design theories and have implemented them in their on-going projects
